gdm won't use xdm-config

I run my primary workstation using Red Hat 6.1 and a second PC as an
Xterminal. I tried to use gdm as my display manager, but it will not accept
the Xsetup pointer in xdm-config. In xdm-config I define the setup file for
all displays as Xsetup, but gdm looks for Xsetup_0 anyway.

Here's my xdm-config:

! $XConsortium: xdm-conf.cpp /main/3 1996/01/15 15:17:26 gildea $
DisplayManager.errorLogFile:	/var/log/xdm-error.log
DisplayManager.pidFile:		/var/run/
DisplayManager.keyFile:		/etc/X11/xdm/xdm-keys
DisplayManager.servers:		/etc/X11/xdm/Xservers
DisplayManager.accessFile:	/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
! All displays should use authorization, but we cannot be sure
! X terminals will be configured that way, so by default
! use authorization only for local displays :0, :1, etc.
!DisplayManager._0.authorize:	true
!DisplayManager._1.authorize:	true
DisplayManager.*.authorize:	true
! The following three resources set up display :0 as the console.
!DisplayManager._0.setup:	/etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
!DisplayManager._0.startup:	/etc/X11/xdm/GiveConsole
!DisplayManager._0.reset:	/etc/X11/xdm/TakeConsole
! I use the following lines instead of the default above to 
! allow Xterminals to use the same resources as the console. aeg
DisplayManager.*.setup:        /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup
DisplayManager.*.startup:      /etc/X11/xdm/GiveConsole
DisplayManager.*.reset:        /etc/X11/xdm/TakeConsole
DisplayManager*resources:	/etc/X11/xdm/Xresources
DisplayManager*session:		/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
DisplayManager*authComplain:	false

Here's my Xsetup:

 If it's too good to be true, it's probably Linux.
